I have played this one only once before, in July 2018. Now, as then, I think we all need a bit of relief from the things that fill our minds, a bit of a reminder of the simplicity of life. Who better to provide that relief than Winnie the Pooh and Kenny Loggins?
Who cannot love both Kenny Loggins and Winnie The Pooh? When you combine the two, you have … sheer magic! From Wikipedia …
“House at Pooh Corner” is a song written by Kenny Loggins, based on the popular children’s book of the same name. The song was first performed by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band on their 1970 album Uncle Charlie & His Dog Teddy and then performed by Loggins and Messina on their 1971 album Sittin’ In.

Thank you for this –
Glad you liked it, too! ❤️
I had never heard of that Country singer’s song about Winnie The Pooh. What a strange combination. 🙂
This is the real Pooh Corner, that you can actually visit.
Best wishes, Pete.
The song is ever-popular here, and has been for decades. It is loved by children and adults alike (me included). It is America’s musical link to Winnie the Pooh. Thank you for the wonderful link, Pete. I know I’ve told you children’s book, “Finding Winnie” which is the true story of the real bear. Best to you, Pete.
love this song. It pops in my mind from time to time even though I can’t tell you the last time I played it. But, it is there now!
Thank you, Lori. I feel the same way! Have you read Sophie Blacknall’s “Finding Winnie; The True Story of Winnie the Pooh” to you’re Pre-K class? It is terrific!
nope, I have never even heard of it…. I’ll have to check it out
I highly recommended it. You know I’m the picky book guru. It won the Caldecott. It’s perfect for your class, a little difficult for my class.
Thank you for sharing!
My pleasure, Jill. It was a wonderful post!
JUST WHAT WE NEED! ❤ Thanks, Jennie. xoxoxo
Thank you, Bette! I feel the same way. ❤️
Winnie was a CDN bear. She came from White river in Ontario. Love that Bear!
I read it was Winnipeg where Winnie came from, and where she got her name. The story of her traveling across Canada on a train and becoming a mascot in the Army is amazing. I love that bear!!
The guy who found her at the White river train station was coming from Winnipeg. He was a Vet and handled the horses. He was an English man, not a CDN. He named her after Winnipeg, where they had been stationed to train. She was an Ontario bear and became the mascot for his regiment.
Thanks for the details, Wayne!! Much appreciated!
Your welcome Jennie! She was a unique bear to be sure!
Well i didn’t know this but any Pooh lover is a friend of mine
So much wisdom about life from our gentle soul Pooh Bear.
I feel the same way, Liz. Pooh’s kindness and simple words of wisdom are still beloved today.
Thanks for sharing, Jennie. I wasn’t aware of the song. It’s a good one.
You’re welcome, Norah. It is a great song.
I love that song and Pooh is a favorite-my at is named Christopher Robin!!
